Politics aside, being of primarily German stock, and having grown up in a primarily German side of town I've always enjoyed a full figured woman mitten das grossen tittens.

I see the influence of Hollywood musicals here. Funny that when the ruling party was trying to limit outside cultural influences.

Anyone notice a strong facial resemblance to Emily Deschanel, that girl who plays lead in the "Bones" series?

The Nazis were imitating the Hollywood musicals, and this was a convenient career move for Ms. Rokk. Doesn't sound like she paid much of a price for backing the wrong horde.

One of they YouTube comments for Ich Brauche Keine Millionen is that it either is, or at least sounds just like, the Muppets theme.

Anyone else notice the pianist looks an awful lot like Harpo Marx?

And just what, exactly, were saxophones doing in a Nazi orchestra?
